Ever wonder where your U.S. tax dollars go? How about towards a new soccer field for detainees at Camp 6 in Guantanamo Bay?
According to Fox News, the soccer field, which is about half the size of an American football field, is near completion -- at a cost of $750,000 to taxpayers.
The construction project was part of a tour Tuesday of the detention camp for reporters covering the arraignment in a military court of Majid Khan, a former Baltimore resident and the only legal U.S. resident on trial at Guantanamo.
This is the third recreation facility at Camp 6, which houses to "highly compliant" detainees who live in a communal setting, the report stated. Other facilities include an indoor recreation field and an outdoor recreation field.
The new field will afford the detainees "maximum access" -- about 20 hours a day, via special passageways to allow passage into the new recreation yard without military escort.
A military police representative who asked not to be identified by name told the reporters that allowing high levels of activity outdoors helped reduce behavioral problems at the camps, and limited the amount of interaction between detainees and the guards, Fox reported.
